Rookie netminder earns back-to-back starts: Americans rookie netminder Marco Costantini made his Americans debut last Friday night stopping 28 of 30 Kansas City shots to earn his first ECHL victory. The following night he stopped 28 of 32 Mavericks shots earning a point in a shootout loss to the Mavericks. His only other ECHL game came with the Idaho Steelheads against the Americans on December 29th at Credit Union of Texas Event Center, where he came into the game in relief of starter David Tendeck. In that game he faced three shots and made three saves. He is expected to get the start tonight against Idaho.
